The Sky One Evening

Yesterday evening I went up on the roof to watch the sun go down, something I often do. By the time I got there, the sun had already set, but the sky remembered!dig

Every sunset is different. Even the same sunset sky goes through many moods, vibrant shades of orange giving way to subtle shades of pink.Pink sky at sunset 2

Just One Sunset…

Every night the sun goes down. And sometimes, like tonight, I go on the roof to watch. At first it looked as if it would be a pretty routine sunset.


As time passed, however, some interesting shadows were being thrown up from behind a bank of clouds.


Which became even more pronounced as time went by.


And more colourful.


Eventually things returned to a more conventional view.


Behind me, the clouds were a softer pink, with the breadfruit and ackee trees silhouetted against the sky.


Finally, night…
